My favorite part about this whole thing is the Green Day reaction (see below)
According to analysis by South China University Of Technology, songs with a fast tempo of 120BPM or higher are more likely to make you drive faster and risk dangerous manoeuvres.
The study involved drivers negotiating their way along a simulated six-lane motorway either in silence or while listening to a range of music. The average number of times the participants switched lanes in 20 minutes was 70 times.
That number doubled when the drivers were listening to rock music. Researchers also found that their speed increased by an average of 5 miles per hour above the limit with rock on the stereo.
Here are the top five most dangerous songs to drive to:
Green Day – ‘American Idiot’
Miley Cyrus – ‘Party In The USA’
The Killers – ‘Mr Brightside’
The Chainsmokers – ‘Don’t Let Me Down’
Bruce Springsteen – ‘Born To Run’
Here are the five least dangerous songs to drive to:
Led Zeppelin – ‘Stairway To Heaven’
Red Hot Chili Peppers – ‘Under The Bridge’
Drake – ‘God’s Plan’
Toto – ‘Africa’
Khalid – ‘Location’
Hat tip to Green Day - who love it
